Mega Man 11 Officially Announced

So…it looks like the 30th anniversary celebration livestream was worth it to some extent after all. With many preparing for inevitable disappointment and growing frustration that Capcom would further distance themselves from one of [if not the] biggest IP in their extensive library, it turns out the developer/publisher were indeed waiting to reveal a big surprise with the official announcement of Mega Man 11.

The latest entry in the franchise’s original series starring the blue bomber retains the former side-scrolling platforming, but this time with a bit more of an animated, 2.5D design, not to mention Mega Man now changes his complete attire depending on the power-up as opposed to a mere palette swap. Mega Man 11 will launch in late 2018 for PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC.
